Bought it at SimMarket today and to my surprise there're no instructions at all on how to install the HD textures into the winglets variants of the B767. Sent already an email to Zinertek asking for them (instructions). Regretfully, a lot of developers seem to rush their products out without checking if all the information is complete or it's not.

Cheers, Ed

Go to the LVLD_B763 folder in your Airplanes folder. Inside that you will see a folder called Zinertek HD Upgrade. Copy the textures from that folder into the main texture folder within the LVLD_B763 & LVLD_B763_winglet folders.  It should copy over 29 files in each.

Hard to tell but it looks only marginally better than Andre's mod, and the OH is still 2d.

Only Texture bitmaps , so no fancy 3D additional panels.

The modelling hasn't changed...

I had a hard time telling the difference with the new textures, so I took screenshots before and after installing the HD textures; the only difference that I see is that things like the texture on the glare shield and yoke look a little better, but important items like button labels don't look any better, and if fact, some of them are worse (the VOR/DME label under the auto/manual nav tuning button, for example)

I really don't see any value to this add-on.

I wasn't expecting any changes in the model, it's always going to be 2D unless Level-D decides to do a complete new model, but you're right, Chris, not worth the price of admission. I'll stick to Andre's mod, which is free and makes just enough of a difference not to fly with the default textures.

Thanks Pete.

Did more or less what you suggest, but I don't think it's necessary to copy the 29 files into the main texture folder inside the LVLD767_Winglets, because that folder takes reference to the main texture folder of the non-winglet model. According to the Zinertek's User Guide, you should also copy all the 29 files into each livery variant, which I think is also not needed and it would be a waste of disk space. I think nothing should be done over the main texture folder of the winglet variant, except making sure you have the original textures that came with the LVLD767 into that folder.

Cheers, Ed
